Analysis of the Haiku structure
on a Sunday morning
Stairway to Heaven
Owen Bullock, Australia
Allusion culturelle à un morceau de Led Zeppelin. Rupture de surface, continuité profonde du discours.
Structure of this haiku.
Used techniques :
* culturel - Use of external cultural reference.
The haiku is based on an external cultural element, well known by the reader. There is a sharing of an environment (place, situation...) or cultural element (music, painting...) that will seek memories or sensations in the memory and experience of the reader. This device saves a lot of space, nothing else is needed, the effect is achieved by the reader's contribution.
Effects: liavec - Binding to the reader's experience.
At the level: 2-prof - Deep level
Deep and non explicit structures, active objects of the unconscious.
Description level: 5-strp - Deep structure (schemas, patterns, cultural, associations, similarities)
* atmosphere - Atmosphere.
Something emerges from all the elements that constitute haiku: a climate, an atmosphere. The author does not state this explicitly. It is the reader who reconstructs it from his or her own experience.
This is especially true in three-segment haiku, also called "grocery list". But this effect can also be achieved in other ways.
The mention of feelings related to the weather and taste adds a multisensory dimension to the atmosphere created.
Effects: liasen - Binding with sensorial feelings.
At the level: 1-surf - Surface level
Discourse, surface structures, content, subject, style.
Description level: 3-suj - Subject, content
